Standing outside of his closet, Jackson reaches his hand up to examine an article of clothing.

"Mama? I want to wear this jean jacket."

"Actually, that's not your jean jacket. Those are your overalls."

"Can I put them on?"


I take the overalls off of the hanger and begin to unbuckle the straps. Without taking his saucer-sized eyes off of those dark denim overalls, he asks,

"What are they going to do do to me?"

"They are going to make you adorable."
